A clarification, and what is the job of a politician?

Dear Sir,

I apologise to Mr Taylor [letters 16 March] for the confusion caused.  I too respect Mr Lamb but it is my duty, as a “politician”, to scrutinise and question his own and the actions of his party.  To clarify the situation Mr Lamb did abstain [“sit on the fence”] and ignore the wishes of the majority of his constituents as far as the Brexit vote was concerned.  His party also failed to deliver on their promise on university tuition fees.

Yours faithfully,

David Ramsbotham
UKIP County Councillor
